Of Giggles and Afternoon Suns
My friend Bondie always sends a good morning mail every day - she being in UK for an assignment, I always get that mail late in the afternoon and smile at it.This was what she sent yesterday and it somehow brought back a flood of memories - Of us standing in a shelterless bus stop in the scorching afternoon sun and hungry. All 3 of us - Me, Bondie and Gundu - would stand there and giggle at anything and everything. Me and Gundu would be so deliriously hungry that the sun would get to both of us and what started as a giggle would go on to be a full fledged laughter until we had tears in our eyes! Other village people (yeah,college was in a village) would stare at us and wonder what we found so funny... And our Bondie would glare at us and ask us to shut-up. We used to tease her that she is our mom while we were young pranksters who needed to be kept in check!
How I wish we could again spend a silly afternoon together... Not worried about anything at all and just have a tear filled laughter. Suddenly - I miss both of you, gurlzz...
